User:Assawyer/Scripts/Status switcher

Note: This module depends on the Add LI link function.

This module will add 3 new links beside the "log out" link. These will be "in", "busy" and "out" for quickly changing your current Wikipedia status. For this to work, you'll need two additional pages:

  1. Special:Mypage/Status
  2. Special:Mypage/StatusTemplate

Note: The exact names of the subpages can be configured in the script.

The first one is the one modified by the script to hold {{User:Example/StatusTemplate|STATUS}}, where "STATUS" will be one of "in", "busy", "out". Then it is up to the "Template" to render it the way you wish. An example is:

'''<div style="border: 1px solid black; background: white; float: right; position: relative; top: -30px; padding: 5px">Example's status: {{ #switch: {{{1}}}
 | in=<span style="color: green;">IN</span>
 | busy=<span style="color: #FFAA00;">BUSY</span>
 | out=<span style="color: red;">OUT</span>

You can tweak it to look whatever you like.

Then all you need is to put {{User:Example/Status}} on whatever pages you want the status to be displayed on and add the following function to your monobook.js.
